    Sheldon is generally up at 6:30 when we get up to get the kids up and ready for school he goes outside does his business comes in hangs around watching the kids come in and out of the house the bus stop is right next door so all the kids troop into our house if its raining or too cold on any given morning I probably anywhere from 5 to 15 kids in my house and they all have to love on Sheldon he is the super star in the neighborhood. He gets breakfast at 7:30 and then he hangs out in the chair or on the floor till about 9 we take a walk he comes in and hits his chair again for about an hour or until Miss Gigi gets up then they both go out in the back yard for about 10 minutes or so they come in and play for about an hour then they intermittently take a nap and chase the feline and play all day till dinner they go out at about 9pm for last potty break then its in the bedroom till morning.

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.

    Ollie is quite the sleeper too!!! I love it!! Luckily pretty much since we've had him i've been off work, so his schedule is not too set, I was getting up with my husband and making him breakfast in the mornings so I would let Ollie out then but he never got too into that routine. Now I'm up by 7:30 to get my son ready for school so he's ready to go out then but if it's a weekend he will sleep in till 10!! Usually whenever he does get up he's up for about an hour maybe a little more and then back to sleep for most of the day untill my son gets home from school around 3, then he's riled up for a few and back lazy untill my husband gets home! Once the hubby is home, he's wound up, around 7 he lays down and starts snoring, if we aren't in bed by 9 he's hinting that it's time for bed!!!! But I love the laziness of them! Our Dane was lazy too, if you were sick or down and out she would lay in the bed ALL day long with you! She was my snuggle buddy!!! Ollie doesn't make a good snuggle buddy he's up and down and everything else!!

    Pep is pretty calm while we're at the shelter. She's up at 5:30 with me, watching as I get everything ready. By 6:10, we're all out the door and on the way to work. She checks the car out, checks on the baby, waits the 3 minutes while I drop baby off, then we hit work. Once there, she scopes everything out, waits patiently as I feed everyone (She isn't allowed in the kennels were the dogs are for obvious reasons), waits while I feed the cats, then its outside for potty. (She will NOT potty before we get to work, its so weird)

    After that, its breakfast time. She will NOT eat before we get to work, as well. After breakfast and a poo break, she lounges for most of the day. She might accompany me to calls or to PetsMart or to the doggie park by the shelter. Once we head home...she's a freaking BALL OF ENERGY! She's running all over, chasing the cats, and playing with baby. After supper, its another walk, maybe 30 minutes with the ball and crashed by 8 with the baby.

    Maybe its her lifestyle, but I think I have an active one. Maybe I broke her

At night though he becomes a lounge rat and usually lays between my legs on the couch and snore away. I guess he's a morning bully lol

    Brutus did this also when he slept in his crate at night. He has been allowed to sleep on the couch for about a month now and he will sleep until 9ish on the weekend. During the week it is earlier because we are all running around the house. Maybe as he gets older you can leave him out at night. He still goes in his crate when we are not home. I'm not that brave yet.

    Once he can be trusted 100% then he will be able to sleep out of the crate and have free roam of the house. I can't wait until the day I don't have to crate him anymore! But I think we are still a ways away from that.

    Well, my dogs have their own schedules. Each one has their own crate to sleep in at night.Maude wakes up at about 3:30 a.m., wants to go out. When she comes back in, she sleeps in her doggie bed, until I get up(for the day). Martha usually wakes up once during the night,(usually just after I get comfy in bed, after Maude comes in) and has to go out, then it's back in her crate until 7:00 am, and she wants up! Lizzie will sleep until 8:00 a.m., Carlie would sleep all day. She does NOT want to get up. It takes me a 1/2 hour to get her to come out of her crate. Sometimes I do have to drag her out! I have never had a dog who was like her! They all go to bed about 8 p.m. So I get up several times a night-with their schedule! Mornings are a little "odd" on the days I have to work!

    And I thought ruthie waking me up at 6am growling and snorting in my face was bad...nope, Daisy takes this one.

    Ruthie is up daily, sitting on my head, growling and snorting in my face at 6am. Weekend or not. She sleeps all day because we are at work but I try to keep her up from the time we get home until bed time. The good thing is, if we are up, ruthie is up. She can't stand missing out on any of the action. God forbid we do anything without her at our feet.

    Winston is pretty lazy too! We have to force him to get up at times, but I do have to say as soon as he hears me getting his food out at 7am and 5:30pm he comes running from wherever he is LOL!
